that depend on them) to function properly:

The following packages have been unpacked but not yet configured.
They must be configured using dpkg --configure or the configure
menu option in dselect for them to work:
brother-lpr-drivers-common Common files for brother-lpr-drivers packages
brother-cups-wrapper-common Common files for Brother cups wrapper packages
brother-cups-wrapper-bh7 Cups Wrapper drivers for bh7 brother printers

however i cant find a way to remove dcp130clpr:i386 so i can install brother-cups-wrapper-bh7 which is needed to operate the printer correctly
